DID YOU KNOW ?

Thanksgiving is coming up pretty soon. I thought that I would do some "DID YOU KNOW?" posts on turkeys.

According to the USDA, close to 250 million turkeys are raised in the U.S. annually. About 45 million turkeys will be cooked in America for Thanksgiving. That's a lot of birds!

So, NOW YOU KNOW.

  1. Texas is #1 for turkey fryer fires in 2013 with 38 reported fires.
    Must be due to the usually nice weather, people don't mind going outside to dunk a bird.

    1. It is too cold in Colorado for outdoor turkey frying (in my opinion, anyway). Maybe they are trying to fry a frozen bird instead of letting it thaw all the way. Thanks, Max, for stopping by!
